Image Search Tip

Sometimes the best search strategy is to look for an image and then use the links from that image to find the answer. In case there's a need for more information from many websites - After finding the basic details in the above mentioned way it's easier to construct on QTSaver a sophisticated query that will gather the best results.

 

This strategy is good especially when you look for:

 

·        Products

·        People

·        Paintings

 

For example: I used this strategy to answer the following questions on Yahoo Answers:

 

1. Who are the statues in San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza supposed to be?

 

I entered search words San Francisco Civic Center statue into Google Image search and got a picture of a certain building. Clicking on that picture led me to Simon Bolivar's statue.

 

 

2. How did amur leopards come to be, when was its prime, why is it on a current endangered list?

 

I entered search words amur leopards into Google Image search and clicked the first picture. It led me to an article with all the needed details .

Search Strategy

In the last few days I was busy answering questions on Yahoo Answers, trying to show the world how efficient is QTSaver, the microcontent engine.

 

Searching requires a lot of patience – one attempt is not always enough. You have to refine your query, add some words or take off others until you get what you want.

 

Most important is to check if the spelling of your search words is correct. Many people enter their misspellings into Google search window, hoping the spell checker will suggest them the right spelling. Others check whether the number of the results is enough to conclude that the spelling is right.

 

This morning I tried to answer the following question:

 

How is the Building Mosque Al-Aqsa?

 

Entering search words "Al-Aqsa" into QTSaver brought me irrelevant sentences like: Al-Aqsa Intifada, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. Anyhow there was no info about the Building.

 

 Entering search words "Al-Aqsa building" into QTSaver brought me info about building attempts in Al-Aqsa but not a description of the building.

 

Only my third attempt in which I entered the search words "Al-Aqsa Mosque description" brought me the answers I wanted.

 

Using the best search engine doesn't guarantee success. I guess that's why so many people use Yahoo Answers. Their searches fail and they hope that somebody in the world will find the right words for their query…

MicroContent Local Search

The more words you put into the search engine's query window the less results you get.  Local search reduces search results- it is like adding a name of a place to every query. Actually you can make a local search on any general search engine by adding a name of the place to your original search words – like: Madonna + New York.

 

But local search engines not only save entering names of places - they collect not only pages that mention the name of the desired place but also pages that belong to the place without mentioning it, like webpages belonging to certain businesses that are situated in the desired place. Local search engines may even identify users' location and retrieve results which are relevant to it.

 

Search localization is a new phenomenon and it is developed  simultaneously by all the mane players in the search engines arena: Google, Yahoo!/Overture, AOL and MSN, and by others.

 

Local searches have one big disadvantage – they are MACRO CONTENTS, which means that if the page talks one time about the place you want and 100 times about other places you'll have to ignore the irrelevant paragraphs in order to find the one you love. This can be really exhausting when you want to collect information from several Websites.

 

I believe QTSaver can be a great  improvement to local search engines, because it collects only the relevant paragraphs. Today QTSaver runs only on the first top results but my dream is that in the future it will run on all the millions of search results and collect all the relevant paragraphs to a separate database. Such a system will have the chance to be called a perfect  local search engine.

Yahoo Questions

Yahoo Answers is a search engine for human answers. There are many questions that are unique for this kind of a search engine, like: "in your words what is…?" From your own experience how to…", "what's your opinion about…". Nevertheless in Yahoo Answers there are many questions that can be answered by regular machine based search engines. Like: What is the largest cell?  What company is Edward Rogers CEO of?   Which state has the longest name ? what are the solution of oil price increase?  what is acoustics as it deals  with ergonomics?  Why do some people have too much iron in blood ?   what does SRA mean?   muscle damages?  what is your definition of Ebonics?

I use QTSaver to answer such questions, but you can use any other search engine. What makes  QTSaver so fit for this job is that you get many answers on one page and can understand right away what's the right one. On other search engines in case you arrived to a wrong result you have to open another link, and in case this one is also wrong  you have to open another link until you get exhausted.

Gordon Parks

On Google zeitgeist I saw 15 search terms that were most popular last week:

 

dana reeve ; spacecraft ; pi ; ncaa ; sopranos ; teri hatcher ; wafah dufour ; sebastian telfair ; world baseball classic ; barry bonds ; knights templar ; bettie page ; march madness ; gordon parks ; peter tomarken ; 

 

Most of these search terms were unfamiliar to me. For example: Gordon Parks.

 

I asked myself:

Who was Gordon Parks?

Why was he so popular?

What made him enter the Google Zeitgeist right now? 

Why didn't I hear about him?

 

I used QTSaver in order to get the answers (see bold fonts) for my questions:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Parks

Gordon Parks (November 30, 1912 – March 7, 2006) was a groundbreaking African-American photographer, musician, poet, novelist, journalist, activist and film director. He is best remembered for his photo essays for Life magazine and as the director of the 1971 film Shaft.

 

http://www.gale.com/free_resources/bhm/bio/parks_g.htm

Parks, who was 93, passed away at his home in New York City on March 7 2006.

 

http://www.gale.com/free_resources/bhm/bio/parks_g.htm

In 2002, at the age of 90, Gordon Parks received the Jackie Robinson Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum. These honors were only the two latest tributes bestowed on a man whose achievements in photography, literature, film, and ballet have earned him more than twenty doctorates and numerous awards. When asked why he undertook so many professions, Parks told Black Enterprise "At first I wasn't sure that I had the talent, but I did know I had a fear of failure, and that fear compelled me to fight off anything that might abet it.

 

http://www.albany.edu/writers-inst/parksflm.html

Gordon Parks Sr. is an accomplished author, composer, filmmaker, and internationally renowned and award-winning photo-journalist. Born in Fort Scott, Kansas in 1912, Gordon Parks overcame poverty and racism to master his art. After his mother died when he was in his teens, Parks left Kansas for Minneapolis and supported himself by working as a piano player, busboy, basketball player and Civilian Conservation Corpsman. At the age of 25, he began to seriously consider photography as a career direction. In addition to The Learning Tree, Parks has written three other books about his life: A Choice of Weapons, To Smile in Autumn, and Voices in the Mirror. Parks also published several volumes of poetry combined with his photographs, including Gordon Parks: A Poet and His Camera; Gordon Parks: Whispers of Intimate Things; Gordon Parks: In Love, Moments Without Proper Names; Arias of Silence; and Glimpses Toward Infinity.

Gordon Parks was born in Kansas in 1912 and spent his youth in Minnesota. During the Depression a variety of jobs, including stints as a musician and as a waiter on passenger trains, took him to various parts of the northern United States. He took up photography during his travels and by 1940 had made his first serious attempts to earn a living from the art as a self-taught fashion photographer in Minneapolis and Chicago.

Dream Search Engine

Yesterday I asked on Yahoo-Answers:

How would a dream-search-engine look like?

For example: one answer instead of zillion results

-Relevant results instead of irrelevant ones etc.

 

I got eight answers:

Five answerers thought that it would look like Google.

One  thought that it would look like MSN.

 

Utcursch wrote:

 

It won't "look" like anything. You just think of what to search for, and the results would be front of you, in the format you want them. That would be the dream-search-engine.

Giveu2tictacs wrote:

 

design one that learns your search style. Example: If I seach for items like clothing, vases, tables. Then the search engine will learn that I am most likely shopping and put primary result for stores first rather than an article about vases. It could also understand that the user always makes the same typing errors. So I type in vaces instead of vases. The search engine would see the spelling error and bring up results for the word I implied.

 

I chose the last answer as the Best Answer, but I think that for the time being the question was more impressive than the answers.

Answering Yahoo Answers Beta with QTSaver

I think some of the questions on Yahoo Answers Beta can be answered on the fly by using QTSaver. Answerers who will use QTSaver will discover that they get a lot of points for giving the best answers. I am going to try to answer as many questions as I can just to test the possibilities of this new system .

 

For example:

On http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Ah8bb3bB7mELIgT80Gs4EOrzy6IX?qid=1006031400488

 

Cyberbob asked:

 

1. How can i keep myslf frm getting distracted by thoughts while i am studying?

 

I entered the words: distracted thoughts studying into QTSaver and in one minute copied three relevant links and pasted them for Cyberbob's:

 

http://www.innerconscious.com/may2k2.htm... The Inner Conscious
http://www.csu.edu.au/division/studserv/... Student Services - Charles Sturt University
http://www.adprima.com/studytips.htm... Study Tips from Students

Now I'm waiting anxiously to see if I get the desired 10 points for the best answer.

Brokeback Mountain

 

One of the search terms that were most popular on meta-search engines while I was preparing my posting about the World Brain "Tag Cloud" was

Brokeback Mountain.  I never heard about it before. I thought it might be a mountain in the US, and wondered what could have made it so popular. The same day I stumbled upon the Oscar Academy Award coverage and understood that the search term Brokeback Mountain relates to a film. It made me curious so I enteres the search term Brokeback Mountain into QTSaver and got the following results:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brokeback_Mountain

Brokeback Mountain is a widely acclaimed BAFTA, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-winning film directed by Ang Lee.The 2005 film stars Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams. The drama depicts a sexual, romantic and emotional relationship between two men living in the American West in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

The tagline of the film is "Love is a Force of Nature". Translations of the title of the film are here: Titles of "Brokeback Mountain".

Brokeback Mountain is the twenty-years story of star-crossed lovers Ennis del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal), two young men, not even 20, who meet and fall in love on a sheep-herding job on Brokeback Mountain, somewhere in Wyoming.The film documents their complex relationship over the twenty years that follow.

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388795

I saw Brokeback Mountain at the Venice Film Festival (with Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hatheway, and Ang Lee in attendance)and it's been haunting me ever since.I had read Annie Proulx's short story in the "New Yorker" years ago and it haunted me as well. What is it about this story?

 

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/brokeback_mountain

beautifully epic Western, Brokeback Mountain's gay love story is embued with heartbreaking universality, helped by the moving performances of Ledger and Gyllenhaal.CAST & CREW Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Williams Directed by Ang Leemore...

SYNOPSIS

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee comes an epic American love story, based on the short story by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Proulx and adapted for the screen by the team of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana.

 

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/preview/1808403311

this is the romantic tale of two male cowboys from very different backgrounds who meet and fall in love while working together as sheep ranch hands near Wyoming's Brokeback Mountain the summer of 1961.Their lives take different courses, however, with Jack Twist (Gyllenhaal) becoming a rodeo cowboy while Ennis Del Mar (Ledger) remains a ranch hand, and the film follows their lives as they see each other again over the next 20 years. Their relationship is rocky, however, as they must deal with the challenges posed as the intolerance of pre-(and post)-Stonewall rural America rears its ugly, violent head against the two lovers.

 

http://www.countingdown.com/movies/3267668

Both young men seem certain of their set places in the heartland - obtaining steady work, marrying and raising a family - and yet hunger for something beyond what they can articulate. When Aguirre dispatches them to work as sheepherders up on the majestic Brokeback Mountain, they gravitate towards camaraderie and then a deeper intimacy. At summer's end, the two must come down from Brokeback and part ways. Remaining in Wyoming, Ennis weds his sweetheart Alma (Michelle Williams), with whom he will have two daughters as he ekes out a living.

Brokeback Mountain, already a hot favorite for next month's Hollywood Oscars, was the big star of the night at the British Film Academy Awards (BAFTA) on Sunday...

Arnaud Leene wrote on his Microcomtent Musings site about My idea to create a public yellow pages directory on Google Base:

I have mixed feelings about this. I stopped adding my personal information on services. By now my profile can be found on many social networking services and all other services I try out. My information is out there and on my personal web-site. I am still waiting for a party that gathers this information and creates something new.

On the MicroLearning Conference in Innsbruck, Austria 23-24 June 2005 Arnaud Leene presented the various aspects of what is called MicroContent.He made it clear what MicroContent really is and coined a MicroContent definition.

Technorati tagged more MicroContent and MicroLearning musings of this presentation. Also see Arnaud's blogged musings on MicroContent.

http://plasticthinking.org/2005_06_01_.html

Arnaud Leene (MicroContent Musings), who is also going to be at Microlearning 2005, published a first draft of his paper: "MicroContent is Everywhere" (PDF).I think it is a good point that he mentions how microcontent gets structured through the use of metadata, calling it Structured Microcontent. Very interesting is the lifecycle of microcontent items he describes: creation, storage, publication, viewing, changing and removing.

http://www.burningchrome.com/~cdent/mt/archives/000419.html

I've started reading Arnaud Leene's Microcontent Musings.

It was great to meet Sebastian Fiedler and Chris Langreiter again, and I also got to know Michael Schuster (twoday.net), Roger Fischer (kaywa.ch), Seb Paquet, Bryan Alexander, Arnaud Leene, Norm Friesen, Hagen Graf, Andrea Handl, Renate Millebner, Patricia K?ll, Wolf Hilzensauer, Gernot Tscherteu, Junichi Azuma, Bruno Haid and many others. I found both the discussions and presentations on MicroContent and MicroLearning as well as the social networking very rewarding, and hope that we will not stop here but transform and establish this discourse on the web. I will write more about this later, I just need some time to let things settle a bit.

 

http://phaidon.philo.at/martin/archives/000298.html

Web 2.0 is based on openly accessable microcontent (for a definition of “microcontent” see here and of course microcontent musings) – it resembles more a field of dynamic content “clouds” than an archive of web “pages” and “documents”. The result is an infrastructure that is open, decentralized, bottom-up and self-organizing.

Jaan Orvet

Most of the traffic to my Blog comes from Google. I never paid much attention to MSN, but yesterday I checked the sites that link to QTSaver and discovered a precious piece of information:

Jaan Orvet wrote on Monday, February 27, 2006 in his Blog about QTSaver under the heading "QTsaver - be click happy".

 

Although Jaan Orvet is not enthusiastic about QTSaver I publish excerpts from his review and  hope to do the same with every next reviewer.

    

"Today I came across QTsaver thanks to Emily Chang's eHub...

"When you're done removing all the results you don't find useful, click on the Save button. All the results you didn't hide will be saved in an editable format."

For this to be valuable, you have to be incredibly click happy. I stopped counting and unchecking check boxes at 74, the other 40 or so didn't seem worth my time.


Granted, there are a few key words towards the left hand corner of the page that help cut down on the frantic clicking in your next search, but it still isn't an effective way of working. Here are my two suggestions for improving QTSaver based on my first visit:

1) Let users tick the boxes that correspond to content they are interested in instead of unchecking.

2) When a user clicks a word in the "key word" list, let that trigger a refined search. Don't force users to hit "search" again. If you stick with it, move the search field and button to within the key word box.

…I feel that there's potential in the idea, but the current implementation leaves me with quite a few doubts".

 

Thanks, Jaan, I hope that our next version will implement your suggestions and get better…

Conclusion: Bloggers – check what people say about you on different search engines. You may be surprised.

Kirby Puckett

On Google Zeitgeist for the Week Ending March 6, 2006  I didn't recognize the following search terms: 

 

Anna Nicole Smith ; Kirby Puckett ; June Carter ; Jessica Alba; Reese Witherspoon ; Dolly Parton ; one tree hill ; Jon Stewart .

 

What does this mean?

 

That most Google surfers are American and I'm not?

That I'm not connected to the trends and patterns of the world?

 

Well, it's never too late to start learning. I used QTSaver to learn about Kirby Puckett.

 

Search results for Kirby Puckett

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirby_Puckett

Kirby Puckett (born March 14, 1961) was widely regarded as one of the best, and most popular, Major League Baseball players of the 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s.

On May 9th, 1997, Puckett appeared on Late Show with David Letterman, and recited the evening's top ten list, "Top Ten Ways to Mispronounce Kirby Puckett", which were...

 

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Costas

Costas once jokingly promised that if Kirby Puckett was batting over .350 by the time his child was born he would name his kid Kirby. True to his word, since Kirby was hitting better than .350, Bob gave his son, Keith Costas, whose first name comes from Bob's first wife's brother, the middle name Kirby.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Twins

The 1982 season brought the team indoors, into the Metrodome, which is in downtown Minneapolis near the Mississippi River. After several losing seasons in the Dome, the arrival of 1980s superstars Kent Hrbek and Kirby Puckett electrified the team and sent them to their first World Series. Louis Cardinals to win the 1987 World Series.

Kent Hrbek and Kirby Puckett) hurt the team badly, and Tom Kelly spent the remainder of his managerial career attempting to rebuild the Twins.

The Rise and Fall of Kirby Puckett

Then he wasn't a ballplayer anymore, let alone a whale of one. Then he was just back to being fat little Kirby Puckett. Of course, this meant being able to spend more time with his mistress of many years, who nobody seems to have known existed, because Kirby was, of course, an ideal family man -- even though, truth be told, he wasn't even an ideal scoundrel, because he also had cheated on his mistress of many years with a passel of other sad and lonely women. And you thought the fans were duped.

Excepted from "The Rise and Fall of Kirby Puckett," by Frank Deford in the March 17, 2003 issue of Sports Illustrated.

"On behalf of Major League Baseball, I am terribly saddened by the sudden passing of Kirby Puckett," said a statement released by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig."He was a Hall of Famer in every sense of the term."

Pete Cashmore wrote  the following about QTSaver on Weblist ("a blog featuring concise, opinionated reviews of Web 2.0 companies"):

 

Search engine built on the Google and Yahoo APIs that allows you to narrow down your searches using related terms and save your result set. It's an extremely early release (the About and Help pages don't even work yet!) and it's too soon to tell how useful it could be. However, the search space is highly competitive and in most cases new search engines fail to attract many users. I suspect QTsaver will suffer the same fate.

Anna Benson

While preparing my posting about the World Brain "Tag Cloud" I noticed that there are too many terms I don't know.

How can it be that the entire world is preoccupied with something and I'm not a part of it? 

 

I suggest you readers that while contemplating the World Brain "Tag Cloud" you make a little list of the things that you don't recognize and later on try to catch up with the herd and learn something about these terms. Like this:

 

Amoxil – What is it?

Anna Benson- Who is it?

Anna Nicole Smith- Who is it?

Ashley Simpson- Who is it?

Beyonce- What is it?

Booty- What is it?

Bow wow- What is it?

Briana Banks- Who is it?

Brokeback mountain- Where is it? Etc.

 

I used QTSaver to catch up with the herd and here are the search results for Anna Benson:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Benson

Anna Benson (born 1976) is an American model. She has been featured in the pages of FHM (who called her "baseball's Hottest Wife") and Penthouse. She is the wife of baseball player Kris Benson.

 

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page3/story?page=mcintyre/annaBenson  

When I interviewed Anna Benson, she was nothing like I expected. Her throaty voice was equal parts sexy and tough, but I was clearly not talking to some dim-witted sex kitten. None of my usual witty banter worked when I tried to make her laugh.

Anna Benson: We actually went to rival high schools in Georgia. We crossed each other's paths back then, but we didn't know it. When I was 22, we were introduced by a mutual friend.

 

http://www.askmen.com/women/models_250/268_anna_Benson .html

With a dirtier mind (and mouth) than Chris Rock, how could we not love Anna Benson ?Not only does she publicly admit to loving sex, but her incredible beauty drives us wild -- especially when she goes on one of her rants about the numerous places she and her husband (New York Metz pitcher Kris Benson ) get it on.

Dubbed "Baseball's Sexiest Wife" by FHM, Anna Benson has gone from outspoken local personality in Pittsburgh, where hubby Kris pitched for five seasons, to national hottie. Known for her openness about her sexuality -- in fact, that's an understatement -- Benson  has seen tabloids, men's magazines and sportswriters alike scramble to include her name in their headlines.

An Atlanta, Georgia native, Anna Benson had a difficult time growing up. She reportedly earned her income as a stripper and was generally a wild girl, often drinking and partying excessively. It took a chance meeting with soon-to-be pro pitcher Kris Benson for all that to change.

When I interviewed Anna Benson , she was nothing like I expected. Her throaty voice was equal parts sexy and tough, but I was clearly not talking to some dim-witted sex kitten. None of my usual witty banter worked when I tried to make her laugh.

Anna Benson : We actually went to rival high schools in Georgia. We crossed each other's paths back then, but we didn't know it. When I was 22, we were introduced by a mutual friend.

Anna Benson  Posted by: Jon Henke on Saturday, February 25, 2006

Now, consider this critique: On Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto, guest host David Asman interviewed Anna Benson , proprietor of Anna Benson  Enterprises, a website that features a photo gallery of Benson  in provocative poses. During a portion of the interview devoted to Benson 's negative views on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and filmmaker Michael Moore, Asman aired some of the site's photographs and observed, "There's some pictures of you in some very, ah, wonderful poses. "So you can evaluate this "conservative misinformation" for yourself, here's a pictures of Mrs. Benson...

I fail to see how their critique was either relevant or damaging. I mean, now I want to know more about this Anna Benson’s views.

I on the other hand want to know more about views of anna Benson  

I want to see more views of Anna Benson.

Apparently, The NY Metz are trading her husband, pitcher Kris Benson (career record 57-61). Baseball teams trade players all the time, and though the Metz say otherwise, FoxNews David Asman persisted in trying to get Anna Benson  to say it was the liberal media's fault for the trade. Of which there are no facts to suggest this. It may be a piddling issue and unworthy of much attention.

ASMAN: The gambling scandal surrounding Wayne Gretzky's wife, Janet Jones, has put the spotlight on the issue of professional sports and whether there is gambling. So, it might surprise some people that Anna Benson, who is the wife of Major League pitcher Kris Benson, is behind one of the most popular poker sites on the Web.

This is not too closely related to the subject but I will note it anyway, given that Anna Benson  is a conservative: Anna Benson 's husband, pitcher Kris Benson , has been a Bad pitcher throughout his career. He's been in the majors for 6 years, in 2 of which he has had a record over .500.

But yes, Kris Benson is crappy pitcher and his wife just says crap. I wish Anna Benson would just go away. Unless of course, Kris Benson cheats on her and I'm one of his teammates.

Do you think Anna Benson would be anything without her looks? I am not fooled by a pretty face and 20 or so pounds of silicone.

If any of my daughters ever ended up like Anna Benson (or Paris Hilton is in the same league), I would consider myself an utter failure as a father.

Anna Benson, wife of Orioles pitcher Kris Benson, is set to take on the challenge of becoming a full-time poker reporter for the powerhouse sports television network. According to Rick Freeman's recent article for the Associated Press, Benson has been playing everyday in preparation for the new gig. Apparently, Benson has been playing online, over her cell phone, or in any live games she can find as she attempts to immerse herself in the game.
